The solstice highlighting palette by Sleep MakeUP is talked about so much, I wanted to see if the product lived up to my expectations after reading hundreds of amazing reviews on it! It’s only £10, I couldn’t get over how much you get for your money. It’s so cheap in comparison to other highlighting palettes! For £10 you get 4 highlighters, 1 cream and 3 powder. AMAZING!!
Ecliptic is meant for highlighting across the brow-bone.
Hemisphere is meant for the cheekbones.
Subsolar is meant for highlighting the bridge of your nose.
Equinox is meant for highlighting your cupids bow.
I personally think all of the highlights are perfect for every use, I love having the same highlight on my cheekbones, cupids bow, nose, inner eye and brow bone – I think it just ties a whole makeup look together! So although they have been designed with a specific purpose, they are definitely amazing multi use products.
The photos above show the swatches of the highlight in natural light and direct sunlight. From top to bottom the shades are, ecliptic (cream highlight), hemisphere, subsolar, equinox. You can see how pigmented the highlighters are, the glitter in the product is not chunky what-so-ever, the highlighters just glide onto your skin and are so easy to blend out. All of the highlighters last well on the skin, giving you a perfect glow throughout the day.
Overall, I’m extremely impressed with this budget highlighting palette. I love it! I love how you can also use the highlights as shimmery eyeshadow and they look beautiful. Have you tried this palette out? Let me know what you think in the comments below!!
